Some years ago while I was still in Secondary school precisely Fakunle Comprehensive High School, Oshogbo, I had just returned from school on a particular day and was sent on an errand by my mum to get something around Egbatedo.
By the way, we lived for years at No 19 Araromi Avenue, Off Egbatedo, Oshogbo. It was around June of the said year which I can’t wrap my head around for now.
While on my way to Egbatedo, I met a friend who I can’t also figure out his name (owing to the fact that its such a long time) but i still vividly recollect the scenario. We got talking and the discussion led to a scene in an home video.
I told him I have not seen the particular movie. He was surprised and inquired whether we have a video player at home. My response was to state the fact which is that we don’t have it.
He then assumed the role of a prophet and declared prophetically that by the grace of God we would have it before the end of the year. Without any modicum of disbelief, I just received it by faith and said an emphatic amen to his prayer.
To be honest, I had forgotten about it until the 31st of December of the said year when my big brother who I fondly address as my Chairman and Mentor, Olabode Opeseitan paid us an unscheduled Yuletide visit with his family.
Lo and behold, he brought us a gift and it was the video player that a friend had prayed around June that we would have before the end of the year. It was at that point that I had a flashback of the prayer and instantly returned all glory and adoration to the Most High.
For many, nothing good can no longer come out of the Nazareth of this year. However, I have good news for such people. Orun toun ran yi si to aso gbe (meaning the sun shinning out there still possess the ability to dry cloth).
Is there a good thing that has been prophesied into your life and is yet to manifest? The God of eleventh hour miracle will bring it to pass in your life and my life in the mighty name of Jesus!
Year 2020 will not swallow our blessings. Every good thing earmarked for us this year shall not elude us.
Don’t write off this year yet. Belief and you shall see God in action. And when it is done, don’t forget to return all the glory to God.
